Ok so maybe I'm pretending it's Spring, but it will be here soon. The beautiful white blooms will appear on our Pear tree in a few short weeks. This little Sparrow is still feeling the chill though, his feathers fluffed to keep himself warm. This painting has a great deal of detail. Did I paint every feather? Yes, I wanted to honor the beautiful markings. After all though, it's just a brown Sparrow. Or is it?

This one has a pretty thick application of oil, applied with a palette knife. The bird is completed with brushes.
Another bird from my backyard, but I took him out of the snow and placed him where I thought he might like it. In the warm weather, close to the sea with an old wrecked building to hide in when he feels like disappearing.

As the dark clouds of a winter snow storm approached, I noticed this Cardinal sitting, watching, waiting. It was really a grey dismal afternoon yesterday, but he added a touch of just enough color to brighten the day. A little bit looser brush strokes this time, as the details of the birds get muted under the cloudy skies.

A few days ago I looked across to a tree in my yard, and there straddling the branch, feathers all puffed up was this not very happy looking Robin. Although the day was clear with a bright blue sky it was freezing. I love how the birds fluff their feathers to keep warm. The next time I see a Robin, I surely won't dismiss it as just a brown bird. Beautiful chromatic grays in the feathers, from taupe to a bluish gray. With the deep browns and black accented with the orange breast and a few white feathers he was a joy to paint.

One really nice thing about the bare trees is that you can really see the birds, without all the foliage. The Cardinals appear all red from the distance, but close up you can see the beautiful chromatic greys in their feathers. Gorgeous birds indeed. My brother named this one too, seems like he is on al roll. Thanks L!

Just another ordinary little Sparrow, only with cold feet. I try to paint the truth, so this time of year this is how things look in Ohio. If there is a leaf to be found it is definitely not on a tree. Spring can't be too far away though, I've seen a few Robins bouncing around the back yard trying to poke their beaks into the frozen soil looking for worms. They are going to have to wait, and for now, settle for sunflower seeds.
My brother named this painting, thanks L!

These are two female birds as seen outside my window. It's cold here, and they are sitting near the feeder waiting for the crowd to thin out. A traffic jam today on a cold and snowy day. Not to different from our world.

I love the little ordinary birds, they wait their turn while the Cardinals and Jay's grab up the best seeds. This one was patiently waiting in the Lilac bush for his turn at the feeder. I'm guessing this winter is hard on the birds, but spring can't be too far behind.
This painting was named by my brother Larry.
